The telecommunications industry, aided by governments around the world, rolled out their infrastructure that makes this technology available in virtually every corner of our lives. Yet they did so before exposure to RF-EMF, radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation had been fully evaluated. In fact, the safety of cell towers and cell phones was not studied for continual human exposure by the U.S. government before the rollout of the cell tower infrastructure or when cell phones first went to market.
It often takes decades for science to catch up with technologies or products for which the consequences warranted earlier warnings. There is now a robust body of science showing harm. Proof of harm is increasing yet the RF radiation guidelines, which are not true safety guidelines, only address the thermal effects of RF radiation. Because it takes heat to directly break the bonds of DNA, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), along with its unofficial collaborative partner International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection ICNIRP in Europe set regulatory limits as if there were no nonthermal effects. Those regulatory limits have never been changed since they were implemented in 1996 in spite of five generations of wireless.
